I love the spa. I go all the time.
Most people already know that, though, so I’ll share a secret that you might not know:
I have never had a facial before.
Well, that might not really be much of a secret… do men really even get facials that often anyway? I had never heard of the idea, but when I visited the Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa in Phoenix, they looked at me like I was crazy for never having had a facial before. (Didn’t bother me, though, I’ve been called crazy for worse reasons…)
Jana, the spa director, finally convinced me to get a facial… but I was adamant about one condition:
If I’m getting a facial, it has to be from the prettiest girl ever. Period.
Yeah, maybe that’s a bit silly on my part… but whatever, this is my story, I’ll tell it how I like.
Anyway, deciding that I deserved a great day at the spa, I also signed up for a massage before I got the facial. Best decision ever. Yeah, I really needed that massage and Rhonda was an absolute miracle worker.
I woke up to the scent of various magical essential oils, and a gentle tapping on my… umm…. upper leg, from Rhonda telling me that my massage was over. At least I think that’s what she said… Literally, what I heard was: “your vacation to heaven is over, time to come back and join the land of the living.” Oh, bittersweet feeling of the end of a massage.
As if it could get better?
I wondered why Jana had a mischevious smile when I asked for the prettiest girl ever. I thought she didn’t like my sense of humor. Turns out she knew something that I didn’t. That she did, in fact, have the prettiest girl ever working in her spa that day. WTH? I am lucky waaaay beyond deserving!!
So I had this facial and she told me all about what she was doing to my skin. I have no idea what she said, however. All I could think of was, how did i get so lucky to have the prettiest girl ever massaging my face?
That was, of course, until the extraction…
Have you ever had a facial before? They are absolute bliss on a cracker for 95% of it, then they pull out this excavating tool and dig into your face without reservation. And, YES, it hurts like heck!
Now I know why they made me sign a waiver.
Who would have known that sweet young Angie from Minnesota could inflict so much pain. I knew she would be a heartbreaker, but I didn’t realize she would break my face too. *sigh*
So, if you find yourself in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, treat yourself to a facial or a massage at the Suddenly Slimmer Day Spa. Just don’t be a wimp, like me.
